EIDE Hard drive

I have been offered a new 250Gb hard disc at a very advantageous price, but I notice on the spec. it says Serial ATA 300. Will this work as slave on my machine which already has an ATA 100 disc installed as master.
I've tried to google it and as far as I can see the only difference is its robustness. Any advice please ?

Sorry, typo on my part. It is an EIDE not SATA. Must learn to concentrate !
